About SARA

About SARA

The Silvercreek Amateur Radio Association or “SARA” was established in 1977 to provide technical support, fellowship, and public service opportunities for amateur radio operators in the tri-county area of Medina, Summit, and Wayne counties in Northeast Ohio. SARA is an ARRL Special Service Club, meaning that it exists to go above and beyond for their communities and for Amateur Radio. SARA strives to be a leader in the Amateur Radio community by providing technical training, publicity programs, and pursuing technical projects and operating activities.

SARA is a general-interest club with members involved in a wide variety of amateur radio activities including VHF/UHF communications, HF communication, repeater operation, digital voice technologies such as DMR, radiosport contesting, and, of course, public service. SARA is proud to support ARES programs in both Summit and Wayne Counties as well as NWS SKYWARN operations in the tri-county area.
